Presented is
a 3 bolt, 3 light Russian helmet, Circa 1992, that comes from the collection of the former owner of a diving
company with extensive overseas operations whose abbreviated resume is below. It was given to him by the Russians
with whom he worked on a private mission in the waters off the submarine bases in Murmansk and Severomorsk.

PROVENANCE: From the collection of a USMC 1st
Force Recon veteran, who after serving two tours in Vietnam, and five years service, began a diving career that
spanned four continents, and 20 years underwater experience before becoming 
 a
manager. The next years were spent as Oceaneering Manager of the Deep Diving Bell and Saturation Systems for a large diving
company.

In 1981, he founded his own deep saturation diving company specializing in 300+ meter / 12 man /
split level operations serving the needs of such companies as PETROBRAS. His company 
holds the longest running
safety track record in the world for deep diving operations to 300 meters having performed more than twenty years of safe
diving operations without a FATAL ACCIDENT. The dive support ship “Toisa Sentinel” under his supervision has
performed more than 4000 saturation dives in deep water to 300 meters without a fatal accident as well.

One
of his personal engagements during this period was with a US Nuclear Submarine operations scientist in Russia where they
performed confidential shallow water work off of the coast of Murmansk inside the Arctic Circle. Murmansk was a central base
of the Soviet Nuclear
Submarine fleet during the Cold War.
 
 Private operations were also conducted near the naval base of
Severomorsk; which today is still the Head quarters of the Russian Northern Fleet  

In 1994 his company mobilized  another vessel with a 22 man split level
saturation system on the Support Vessel Toisa Sentinel. His crew on the DSV Toisa Sentinel had been operating continuously
performing 24 hour day,. Deep diving operation for Petrobras from 1994 until 2011.

Selling his dive company in 2001, he continued with them until 2005, at which time he began
a saturation diving consulting business in which he is active today.
